Greg, I coincide with you, Maniac has a great potential. Visual Basic was not, surely, the best decision for this program, and additionally, I deduce that there are some problems with the search method used, looking with some care the way the program plays after a few experiments with the adjustable evaluation parameters; nevertheless, all has solutions, and it should be interesting see this program improved. I don´t know if the author has interest in improvements. The fact I know is that it was an academic work.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.
